When Oak Park's Summer festival, A Day in our Village started in 1975, Oak Parker Iris Lozeau was there as a volunteer, and was there for the next 37 of them. Known as the "godmother" of that event, Iris brought an enthusiasm and energy to everything she did. Sadly, Iris passed away on Nov. 25, 2012 at the University of Illinois Medical Center in Chicago. She worked for 34 years at the Oak Park Township office before her retirement in 2006. She was also active in the Amvets Auxiliary and Zonta International. Her favorite flower was, of course, the iris. Mrs. Lozeau was the wife of the late William "Shady Bill" Lozeau; the mother of Diane Andres and Cheri (fiancé David Johnson) Figgins; the step-mother of Robert (Sue) and William (the late Pam) Lozeau and the late Carol (the late Wes) Capps; the grandmother of Ryan, Morgan and Bailey Figgins, Joel (Diane) and Michael Taylor and Julie Capps, and Suzanne Lozeau; great-grandmother of Lily Smith, and Ben and Karen Taylor; sister of the late Richard (the late Beverly) Privoznik; and the aunt, cousin and friend of many. Visitation will take place on Friday, Nov. 30 from 4 to 8 p.m. at Drechsler, Brown & Williams Funeral Home, 203 S. Marion St., Oak Park, where services will be held on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. Interment is private.
